I'm a 33 years old woman who has been on this journey for quite a while before SP. My highest weight, back in 2001, was 330+lbs (for 5ft10). I don't know the exact number because the scale didn't go further up.

I started SP on 1/1/2011, because I had a major "aha" moment on New Year's Eve, realising I'd put weight back on and if that kept up my diabetes and blood pressure would go through the roof. I also didn't like my appearance one bit.

I also wanted to meet a man to love. As experience later proved, it is a lot better for me to be on my own and have fun and don't pressure myself when interacting with others than to be with someone who's not a good match...!

Oh, by the way: I'm a die hard size acceptance person, so don't expect fat bashing, "mooing", and all that nasty stuff here. I'm doing this for my own reasons, and I respect the choice of others if they do not wish/aren't in a place they can embark on that journey (yet or not).

Since starting SP I have normalised my blood sugar and blood pressure, am no longer obese, and my heart is healthier than it's ever been before. I've also been exercising regularly ever since.

Though the path to health is a highly personal (even intimate) choice, we're all in the same boat here on Sparkpeople. That is why I keep coming back :)

I am a "shoot for the moon, land among the stars" type of person. I think beating yourself up for not meeting a precise date is demotivating.

Sensible meals. Trying to keep in the low range for carbs and calories. I will /not/ eat something I don't like. I will /not/ deny myself stuff I like. Instead, I'll have smaller portions.

Exercise (gym, swimming) and walk every weekday.

Other Information:
I'm a geek, I like computers and the 'net, and playing some video games. Reading and writing are good as well.
